Sike!

Not really excited about beisbol yet. Everyone in the METS division got better except the METS. Still a decent roster. This ain't the Royals or anything. Wilps gotta sell. It's over. Ya had a good run old man tell your lil boy to run the hedge fund and real estate portfolio and call it a day. Ain't there some retirement community you can go to. Lick ice cream cones at noon, play some shuffleboard. Shit maybe even watch a little NCIS Los Angeles? While your at it take Jim Dolan with you. The Donald Sterling of the East Coast. Thank heeeeesuss* for the GGGG-MMMMEENNNN.

A Change Is Gonna Come, by Sam Cooke is in my top ten.

I gave up red meat and porn for lent. NS. Gonna be on edge though. Giving up porn is a YA-HUGE deal. Especially after stumbling upon youjizz.com the other day. Who whatta thunk it. What a clever name. You Jizz. Get it? You Jizz. That's classic.

Going here Saturday for chilaquilles and margaritas and beers.

I feel like Melo is getting a bad rap. Seriously. He will thrive with good PG play. Watch. What is better for a natural scorer like Melo to get good looks?

Does everyone really like the story of the underdog? The undrafted? The runt? The last guy picked on the dodgeball court? The misfit? The orphan? The least likely?

Winning cures all. If Melo gets out there and wins with Lin they'll be friends.

oh stop

you people

you make it like i have cerebal palsy with the 5'9 thing

try and count throughout the course of one day how many people you see that you think are about 5'9

then tell me how horrendous they appear to be because of this handicap

tem said...

not challenging the failed test part might (a huge might i know) have been a strategy on purpose.

nobody has ever won a challenge by saying the test is wrong. so why bother? just challenge under some technicality and maybe you will win.

El Padrino said...

funniest thing about this running yoke* is i never, ever thought that i was short

still dont but i wavered in the beginning

you make it like i have cerebal palsy with the 5'9 thing



you were the one who lied about the .5

El Padrino said...

"just challenge under some technicality and maybe you will win."

pretty much law 101

like when judges disallow key evidence in a case because it was collected improperly by authorities

tem said...

i think most people challenge and take a multipronged (multidong? /LP) approach.

then it gets to judgement time and the arbiter says well, this sounded like you were right, but this sounded like you were wrong, etc and then he says well i guess 1 wrong means you failed. and the appeal is denied.

braun just broke it down to 1 thing. and the arbiter had no choice but to say MLB was wrong and thus Braun won the appeal.

Jugdish said...

the guy who had the sample apparently had the vile of Braun's piss on his desk all weekend...nice

Keef said...

Yep, I totally get that. I was just saying, he still failed the test. He's still a cheater. He just got off because MLB is stupid enough to do drug tests on Saturday afternoons when they know the sample has to be in Montreal within 24 hours and there's no delivery on sundays

Keef said...

Keef said...

So I guess this other VW dealership is going to take our car as a trade in for a new car. We're just going to get another Jetta for now, because they're cheaper and they're way nicer than the Jetta I have. We were also planning on buying a Honda Ridgeline that cmk's parents have next year. But they're going to let us get it sooner but won't have to start paying them until my jetta lease is up next May. So we're going to let my Jetta sit in the driveway for a while so that it can catch up on the mileage and then I won't have to end up paying a shit ton in mileage fees or buying it outright.

if you would have said you were 5'9 from the beginning, no one probably would have said anything. then you add the .5 and it sounds like you're compensating for something. Then you admit to lying about the .5...which makes us think you're shorter than 5'9

Right. He also said he never knowing or unknowingly had a banned substance in his body.

a 4:1 ratio flags as a fail. His test was at 20:1. That's ludicrous.

Jugdish said...

well neither one of us knows anything about drug testing, so let's not pretend that we do.

Jugdish said...

i did say i thought they made the right decision by overturning the ban

Jugdish said...

he is saying he is a victim of a broken down process though

Jugdish said...

I find him being a victim of a broken down process a little comical. He never disputed the science behind the test, or that the results were bad. His sample never proved to be tampered with and was properly sealed when it
arrived at the lab with his signature on it and everything. The sample was just not handled according to established procedures. So I don't see him as
a victim of a broken down process, but a beneficiary.

Blue said...

unless the technicality, voided prince fielder's contract with the tigers and he must go back and play for the brewers.

then this is all just noise

Blue said...

at least they made braun get a hair cut

tem said...

turns out braun got the rich person cancer vaccine right before his test which messed with the results.

but he couldn't use that as a defense because the drug companies don't want poor people knowing there is a cancer vaccine out there.

tem said...

just like they can cure AIDS for rich people they can cure and prevent cancer.

but poor people can't know because they can't pay.

chain of command defense, like mlb blaming someone else?



-no, chain of command rules deal with evidence in law enforcement's possession (or, as here, MLB).

-For instance, if you get pulled over on suspicion of DUI, they need to take a blood test. Once that test is taken, chain of command rules come in to play, and that blood has to be accounted for at all times, with no possibility of outside access for potential tampering.

-You trace the evidence through different hands, making sure there were protections in place at all times to make sure nobody can fuck with the evidence.

-easy to create wiggle room for the defense if there is even a very brief span where evidence could have been touched/altered by anybody not permitted to have the evidence under chain of command (sometimes even mere seconds of unaccounted for evidence has resulted in dismissal in some instances)

*It works the same for physical evidence like firearms, burglary tools, etc.
